Overview of Arizona Nursing Homes

Home to one of the great natural wonders of the world, The Grand Canyon, and ideally located in America’s warm and dry southwest region, Arizona is popular with tourists and residents alike. The landscape of Arizona varies from desert to forested mountains but never fails to impress with its picturesque beauty. It is estimated that the senior population of Arizona will triple in size over the next 40 years.

Today’s seniors are expected to live longer than ever before and many are choosing to leave colder and wetter states to enjoy the mild winters and bright sunshine of Arizona for their retirement years. In response to this growing demand for high quality senior care, Arizona is providing specialized medical care and nursing facilities for Arizona’s aging population. The University of Arizona has created the Arizona Center on Aging to promote education, research and care of seniors. The goal of the center is to work to extend the lifespan and improve the quality of life for seniors. It offers extensive resources on the subject of aging as well a list of geriatricians accepting patients.

Nursing homes in Arizona are required to always have a nurse on staff. Individuals who require assistance with issues such as incontinence, wound care or complicated medication requirements will find that their needs are met within a nursing home.
